    Authorities say a man hunting turkeys in Massachusetts has been shot by a fellow hunter, but his injuries are not considered life-threatening.

    A spokeswoman for the state environmental police say the man was hunting alone in South Hadley when he was shot at about 9 a.m. Tuesday.

    The 37-year-old Chicopee man was first taken by other hunters to Holyoke Medical Center for treatment of a back injury and then transferred to Baystate Medical Center in Springfield.

    His name was not released.
